Kindergarten Gems by  Agnes Taylor Ketchum & Ida M. Jorgensen


 

 

CLOUDS AND SUNSHINE.

Oh, I wonder if any one knows,

On a sunshiny day, where a dark cloud goes?

I have heard that it hovers about, unheeded,

Until on an angry child's face it is needed;

Then swiftly and silently it settles down

On his smooth, white forehead—an ugly frown.


Oh, I wonder if any one knows,

On a cloudy day, where the sunshine goes?

I have heard that it chooses the queerest places—

The hearts of good children, and shines through their faces;

In their eyes it dances all the while,

On their lips it lingers—a loving smile.
